                             PETITION FOR REMOVAL FROM OFFICE

          In the matter of Representative FRELINGHUYSEN, 11th Congressional District, New Jersey:

            Saily Avelenda, an employee at the Lakeland Bank (NJ) led protests against FRELINGHUYSEN about lack of Town Hall meetings, health care and other Trump agenda issues. A handwritten note from FRELINGHUYSEN resulted in  her having to resign her job.

On March21, 2017, FRELINGHUYSEN wrote a letter to a Mr. Joseph O'Dowd, a board member of the Lakeland Bank. In this letter was an appeal for money. FRELINGHUYSEN also complained about attacks from "organized forces." In a handwritten note at the bottom of his letter FRELINGHUYSEN stated "one of the ringleaders works in your bank".

          Actions such as FRELINGHUYSEN's   can have a chilling effect on American citizens' exercise of their First Amendment right to free speech.

          The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.


 The U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3 states:

“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”


          Representative Frelinghausen, by your action to punish an American citizen for the exercise of her Constitutionally granted First Amendment rights, you have violated your oath of office to support the Constitution of the United States.

          We the undersigned demand your immediate resignation of your office.
